FIVE STARS. Jeff, our server, was absolutely amazing. The food was to die for. The tantalizing smells and gourmet flavors were mouthwatering. My husband had the peppercorn steak and it was one of the best steaks he’s ever had. They were also excellent at handling my various food allergies. At the end, we loved our desert so much that we ordered it twice. Definitely try the Cherries Jubilee. Everything about this restaurant is outstanding. We will return!

Le Continental is an "Old World" dining experience. Impeccable service, tableside food preparation, and outstanding food and drinks. This is the best restaurant in Old Quebec City. It is a must when in Quebec City.

If you like flambe food this is the place to go. The steak is outstanding and cooked and flambed right at your table - dramatic and special.

Chose to try Le Continental because of the old French style cooking by the table. Had the fixed course menu and we had a rabbit brisket bundle in a pastry shell, delicious, followed by broccoli soup, duck a l’orange carved and cooked in sauce next to our table and it came with a side of veggies, then we chose berry sorbet for dessert. They were busy but kept our bread and water topped up the entire time and all were very efficient. Definitely come here to try old style French cuisine!

White coated servers providing excellent service and recommendations! Very formal and distinguished. We were clearly underdressed but they made us feel so welcomed. Craft cocktails, help with the wine list, caesar salad prepared tableside (old school), duck L'orange flambeed tableside (older school) and an amazing dessert. Nothing like dinner and a show. Not sure if there was anyone in the kitchen because there was so much being prepared and flambeed out in the restaurant. This is an elegant, old school, fine dining opportunity, not to be missed in Quebec. Big 👍

Fillet mignon was great, cooked at the table; however the vegetables and potatoes from the kitchen was subpar. My wife’s salmon dish was also undercooked and under seasoned. The ambiance is very nice and traditional and service was very good. Caesar salad was also made table side but fell short on flavor. Dessert was not memorable.

We ate here while on a short holiday in Vieux Quebec. I have been to many wonderful top end restaurants around the world and will put our experience at Le Continental ranking highly. The food with the table Flambé service is an added joy. Our waiter did not only provide great service but he was an amazing chef to boot. He prepared my filet mignon and my wife’s entrecôte to perfection table side. Sauces were wonderful. Starters were very good homemade soups just enough to whet our appetites for the perfectly prepared beef. The wine list had several solid selections from around the world and prices were reasonable, except of course, for the overpriced CA wines. But I can’t blame the restraint for that. We enjoyed a 2015 St Emillion for $75ca. It was a percent pairing. I highly recommend this restaurant and you will not be sorry.

Le Continental is a breath of fresh air as a classic throwback! It’s how French food used to be served. Classic dishes, prepared classically to perfection. They are famous for their table side preparations, which we took advantage of. Our classic Caesar salad for two had the dressing prepared in a wooden bowl and it was delicious.

Next my entree of “Whiskey Shrimp” was prepared table side with shrimp being flambed in whiskey, butter, garlic and then lobster bisque. Then more lobster bisque reduced over heat as shrimp were removed. This made for an amazing sauce.

Finally we had the crepe Suzette for dessert and it was delicious. Brandy or cognac, butter and sugar, grand mariner and orange juice combined to make a delicious sauce with quite a show along the way by our excellent server.

Also had escargot 🐌 from the kitchen and the shrimp and langostinos entree from the kitchen. Both were excellent.

Service, atmosphere, delicious food...what else can you really ask for?

This was a fascinating walk back in time—waiters in white jackets, tableside Caesar salads and sautéed steaks. The food was good, but I never quite felt comfortable.

The table-side Caesar salad was outstanding. The quality of the meat in the chateaubriand was top notch. Unfortunately the mushroom sauce was too salty and not at the same level as the rest of the meal.

I highly recommend the Caesar salad. I even recommend the chateaubriand just skip the mushroom sauce or take it on the side and decide for yourself. The rest of the vegetables on the plate were excellent.

The service was impeccable. The atmosphere was elegant.

Le Continental came highly recommended by a trusted friend. As expected, Le Continental delivered with impeccable service, delicately prepared and presented fare, and superlative romantic dining experience. There were only a few minor glitches, which were rectified with understated flare. For example, my wife's fish was first presented to her but someone had forgotten to put on the sauce that was intended to go on it. We both thought that we could have benefitted from a more helpful sommelier with a difficult choice, as my wife ordered fish while I had the steak. Despite these minor glitches, the experience was superlative. We would return again in an instant.

L’ambiance, le service, la nourriture, la préparation des plats étaient excellents. La salade Cesar était un petit délice, le filet flambé avec une sauce régalante et accompagné d’un très bon Bordeaux. Jeff et moi n’oublierons jamais cette charmante soirée que nous avons passé dans ce resto. Merci beaucoup Denis, vous êtes formidable!

We can’t stay away! Tonite we had table side flambé Duck à L’ orange for two. Then an amazing crépe Suzette flaming right at the table. If you come to Quebec City and miss this restaurant... you haven’t fully experienced the old world charm that this city has to offer.
